Waking up & Weekly Humilation #2

I went to sleep at 2:30 this morning, stressed about school and feeling bad about my impending failure at MBA school....guess what time I woke up???

6:30am, not by my choice!!! The stupid girl in the room next to mine, set her alarm clock for 6:30am but this genius wasn't there - so the alarm kept ringing and ringing and ringing and ringing - argh!!! I went down to the housing office to see what they could do, the two kids at the front desk with their smiling faces and joivial moods told me with positivism exhuding from the, "sorry nothing we can do." Kill me now. I decided sleep was to be had and got up. Finally this dimwit's friend, who lives down the hall, came around, messed with the door and picking the lock and got it turned off an hour later - when I was dressed and ready to go.

What a great way to start my day. Sigh.

Weekly Humiliation
Accounting Class has now become the bane of my existence...if ever I questioned my mental capabilities, I.Q., its in this place. I seriously wonder if maybe I'm borderline mentally retarded??? Maybe that is why I'm having such a hard time in this freaking class.

Yesterday, I failed to bring my two annual reports to class (cause I thought we wouldn't be using them) and the teacher pointed it out. Great, nice. Plus I barely passed the class's daily quiz, so I'm averaging a "C," which I'm sure reconfirm's the teacher's opinion of me being a nitwit and to which I'm unexperienced at dealing with.

Ramadan Mubarak btw...starts on Friday or Saturday or Sunday, depending on where you live. May the blessings of this month be yours to enjoy throughout the year.

OK, you're in my area of expertise now. I know from Borderline. You're not. Your verbal and performance skills are far too advanced. Relax.

When does Ramadan start for you? Blessings to you in advance, just in case I'm not back online over at the Room by then!

Back when I was in school I was 'house super' for the dorm I was in. With keys for every room. Is there no one there with keys? What if there was an emergency, screaming or smoke in a room?

Sorry about your classes, but I'm sure as you go on with them your brain will readjust to the learning process and things will get better.

Is it proper to wish someone a "Happy Ramadan"? Probably not, but I meant well...

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE stop stressing over all of this silly stuff. You will do fine! Fine I tells ya!

As a wise man once said, "D's Get Degrees!"

You are not a dimwit amiga mia... not at all...

Back in high school they stuck me in an accounting class... that lasted a day, well, if that because in the middle of the class I up and bolted out of there, running to my high school counselor and begging for her to get me outta there... I ended up being an assistant to my French teacher that period... phew! That class would have crushed me! Stick business terms and the like on me and I crumble! You are a brave woman and bohemians everywhere applaud you!

Blessings to you, sweet friend :-)

Don't be so hard on yourself! If you're mentally retarded, then I am positively brain-dead when it comes to accounting!! Just the thought of taking a college-level accounting class makes me queasy.

You still have time to raise that C, and I know you will :-)

you still totally have time to raise the C. plus, if i can pass my syntax classes and still no nothing about syntax, you can pass accounting. just look at it as one of the bitter pills you have to swallow to get to the dessert (the degree) at the end.

and go back and read "Ooohsoocrazy's" second paragraph. read it 5 times over! the sooner you stop self-dissing, the happier you'll be.

... oh and Ramadan Mubarak. (if that's the appropriate blessing)

btw... is Ramadan supposed to be a happy time? i asked a jewish coworker the other day if i could say "happy rosh hashhanah" and she said that was cool. but apparently not so much with "happy yom kipppur" because even though you'd think atonement is a cause for rejoicing, it's supposed to be solemn atonement. it's so hard to know what to say. but: i'm thinking of you and hope that this Ramadan is good for you.

Merci - bless you for making me feel better and not thinking I'm completely an idiot.

Naema - you know my woes, hopefully I'll see more of you guys during Ramandan, it helps me feel better : )

Joe - yeah, that was what I was wondering, would they let a body decompose in a room - idiots! Thank God they finally stopped the noise. And hopefully the more I do this the more my brain will get kick started.

Pax - D's got degree's, hee hee - I wish, but any C's and I'm kicked out of the program. Aye.

Miz Bohemia = Bohemians applaud little ol moi?! I'm touched, and its comforting to know I'm not the only one who finds accounting excrutiating.

Laurie - Thank you for the support and blessings - its good to know friends are out there : )

Molly - I'm having a crisis of faith during Ramadan but thanks for the sentiments. As for the third paragraph, I'm reading it over and over - good advice!

re: Crisis of Faith - It's used too often, but there's truth in the ancient adage: "The Unexamined Life is not Worth Living."

(... unfortunately, i might also add, the unexamined life is generally more fun. Look at Paris Hilton: for her, "introspection" is probably a bacterial infection. however, i don't think her life is worth living; i wouldn't want so shallow an existence.)

but I digress. reflect on people who you consider pillars of faith - whomever they might be - and i'll bet you'll find that EVERY SINGLE ONE of them went through a crisis, if not many crises, of faith. Moses, Jesus, Buddha, Mohammed, Martin Luther. Mother Theresa supposedly spent the last 20 years of her life in a dark place feeling abandoned by God, but her faith still inspires people. And there are others in your personal life, I'm sure. The people who have struggled with - and probably still struggle with their faith. Maybe they set aside their relationship with God, too. But ultimately I find their faiths inspiring precisely because they struggle. I've never ever been able to be inspired by those whose relationships with God contain no doubt and simple blind obedience to whatever convention is handed to them. Wrestle, dear VA Gal. Jacob did it with the Angel, and Jesus did it with God on the cross. I'll be praying for you in this holy month!!

Sorry for the sermon.

(... now if you'll all turn to page 145 in your hymnals for today's communion hymn.)
